Tongva After Dark will continue its third season of cultural programming with The Wonder Room, an evening of curated performances by an interdisciplinary group of extraordinary artists who will activate the intimate “rooms” of Tongva Park simultaneously, on Wednesday, September 21, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The Wonder Room will include dance performances by Jacob Jonas The Company, Senegalese street music and songs with Amaduo Fall and special guest Ibrahima Ba, work by visual artists Kate Johnson and Tristan Duke, a water-themed shadow play by Moira Lael MacDonald and puppetry vignettes by Eli Presser. The event will be accompanied by the atmospheric lighting designs of Kirk Wilson.
Tongva After Dark is an ongoing series of intimate and informal events that offers audiences the opportunity to experience Tongva Park from different points of view. The 2016 Wonder Room is curated by the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division and co-produced by Community Arts Resources.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information visit: www.smgov.net/tongvapark/events
